Strengthening Communities

Supporting stronger, more resilient communities.

The coronavirus pandemic is the latest example of how unexpected events can turn people’s lives upside down. 

We will work with our customers, communities and partners to build back a stronger economy, and help more people get the insurance protection and income in retirement they need for a bright future. 

Globally as a business in 2020 we committed £43 million to charitable partners to support customers and communities to face the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In addition, we committed £11.5 million to other local projects, making total community investment £54.5 million in 2020. Overall, this has helped 5.1 million people.
